song on words of Gardner McFall for voice and piano (2012)

UNAVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD

Commissioned by Opera America for inclusion in the Opera America Songbook, a publication celebrating the grand opening of the American Opera Center in New York City. I tapped Gardner McFall, librettist for my opera Amelia, to pen a lyric especially for the occasion. She created Anacrusis, which I set to music specifically with Robert Orth and Thomas Bagwell in mind. The duo recorded it. The Songbook is available from Schott.
